The Atletico Madrid forward has been heavily linked with a January move to London and has revealed his admiration for the Premier League.
"The quality of the league is not in doubt - there is so much talk of Barcelona and Real Madrid but the champions of Europe are in England," said the 26-year-old, quoted in The People.
And the former Porto man, who scored a hat-trick in the UEFA Super Cup against Chelsea in August, even has an all-time favourite Premier League player - compatriot Faustino Asprilla.
Asprilla had a spell at Newcastle from 1996 to 1998 and became a favourite on Tyneside.
Falcao added: "My favourite was of course Faustino. I always support other Colombian players - and he showed that South Americans can handle the English game."
